Well as most already know I've sold the beamer and purchased a wonderful Triumph Tiger!!
To start the story off I have to say it was a pretty awesome day, maybe a bit long. I took the family out to VA beach to pick up this Bike
Started the day at the beach with the kids playing, nice sun rise, forgot the camera. The gps fumbled the address so we are sitting at an address that matched hondaf4iguys' all except it was road not court....well the wife says to me he said it needed a little tlc but are you sure this is the house??? It looked like
well called his cell, straight to voicemail
so we mess around call some friends get them to google and an hour later we find out we were only 2 blocks away
Looked at the ride it was exactly as he described no suprises! The white really suites the bike and I love white, color of choice on most of my cars!!
As we've stood and talked I finally deceide to take it for a ride after a 5min. coaching on how to climb aboard a talk bike
I'm off. Of course being that I can't find myself out of a wet paper bag when it comes to directions I foul up 4 rights and a left
We get back and I all but fall of the tall bike
another laughter session on how to get on and off the bike from hondaf4iguy
Got it loaded on the trailer i've never hauled a bike and always make fun of those that do, but I guess it made since
before getting back the misses had already made plans for a sitter because of a party we missed cause of the gps glitch so she decides we can leave the kids anyway and take the new bike for a ride
ummm not a hard sale obiviously
We both had a great time on it on some nice country back roads. Well after a lot of fun playing with it!! The conclusion is this bike will be around a long time!!
She likes it has a nice back rest for her, which doubles as a huge trunk for the work commute!! Got to say even 2-up its got plenty of power, one time she said "I was expecting you to take off like that but thank goodness it had the back rest as i would have been falling off any of the other bikes you've had
" I don't think it was that bad but anyways it has plenty of pickup!!
Finally got to ride it by myself today and many turns and couple wheelies later i totally made the right choice!!! I LOVE this bike!!! Smooth machine!!
So all in all got to help a friend out and buy a great bike and a small mini vacation for the family!! It was great!!
I will have to get back to Virginia Beach and meet all the local guys, but on the bike this time, i'm sure i'll never ride it as hard as f4iguy has but it will leave me with plenty of smiles just the same!!
Sorry so winded!!
